    Question Quattro and Assymetric tyres

    As title, I'm due a new set of tyres and after much reasearch have decided on the Pzero Rosso Asimmetrico's based on performance, price and tread-life. My 1 concern is the compatibility with the Torsen Quattro drive. Someone somewhere hinted that there may be an issue, but I can't find the post anywhere(I may have misread it in the 1st place!!).

    Can anybody shed some light on this please?

    You'll be fine as long as they all have the same tread pattern.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    Are the ones you intend on fitting black and round?

    They were standard fittment on my car. They grip alright, are good in the wet and are wearing very well. I'd guess at least 28k on the set. My only gripe is they can be noisy on bad roads, almost like a wheel bearing is shot.
